KS1 Maths Quiz - Year 1 Numbers - Picture Problems (Questions)

This quiz addresses the requirements of the National Curriculum KS1 Maths and Numeracy for children aged 5 and 6 in year 1. Specifically this quiz is aimed at the section dealing with solving problems using objects and pictorial representations.

Picture problems are number questions which use representative illustrations to help solve them. These representations can be useful when counting on or back, as it’s often easier to work out the answer to a problem if you can see a picture of what you’re counting!
